I just found out that ' the voice of God ' ( as Reggie Jackson aptly titled him) died this morning at 99 . That would be Bob Sheppard .

Here is an audio clip from the last game @ the Stadium , before they moved to the trophy wife across the street . It was also the last time he announced the starting line ups . It's enough to make a grown Yankee fan cry .

Well, in my bracket I picked Spain over Netherlands in the finals, with Spain beating Germany in the semis (I had the Dutch beating England on the other side). If Spain wins, I end up taking second place b/c someone else did better in earlier rounds with same final 3. So, even though I could win a staggering $23 for second place, I'm pulling for the Dutch (and have on my full orange t-shirt as I type).

I'll go for the Dutch, based on the fact that I like Rembrandt better than El Greco. Plus, the Dutch are generally cool. Hubby is for the Netherlands based on some other reason having to do with some previous game, and is actually going to watch the thing. In theory, I prefer soccer and baseball to other sports cuz the players don't look like steroid cases. But that's theoretical. I wouldn't actually WATCH. Zzzzzz ... But if you're smart, if I bet on the Dutch, definitely bet on Spain.

Sorry Holland, but my shaman rooster just ate the grain from the Spain cup first. He's more psychic than that octopus.

Loads of talent in strikers, stingy defense... my money's on Spain.

As for baseball, the rest of the country is sick of Yankees domination, the best team money can buy. Rivera looks human this year.
